Subject: It's the Greek!
Indeed, it's the Greek Theater, one of a handful of 'sacred' spaces to see the Dead. Location, location, location, as the old saying goes. Next, the quality of the recording is very high. Most who review these shows recall the days when having a copy of a tape that sounded like this was a rare gem to treasure. Finally, the energy and arrangement of Estimated is both high and unique, specifically crescendo of this tune happening with the well known ostinato of the bridge. What's unique is the staccato performance, which makes it so much crisper and energetic. Brilliant!

These shows were a mere shell compared to 9/11-9/13/81. I would take any 20 minutes of those shows over even the DS...
12/31/81 was about it as far as getting a lift rather than a drag.

At the rabid recommendation of a friend, I just gave this show a spin. I tried, really tried, but have very little good to say about what was assuredly a lovely day at the Greek. Help > Slip > Franklin's is a muddled miss of blown lyrics and fragmentary guitar runs. Eyes is a complete drug-accelerated trainwreck and Bobby is mostly oversinging Estimated and although the rest of the band clearly made the gig, Jerry is barely there. I would not rebroadcast the key elements of this show on the radio or any P.A., anywhere, anytime. Extra star for the Big Railroad Blues. So far the 13th sounds better, for whatever that's worth.

RR Blues is very special, took me a while to learn the two JG jams. I listened to all the RR blues from 80 to 86 and this is the best so far. The rest of this show has the same high level energy!
